Feast of The Triumph of the Cross: Paradox of the Cross

"The Church sprang from My Heart on the Cross. There it is that the Church so pure and beautiful was born from My side as Eve from Adam's side, in order to be the Mother of all Christians, of all souls, to save them through the infinite merits I deposited in her immaculate soul" (Diary, March 14, 1928)."

"Through the external cross which all can see, I was a victim acceptable to the Father by shedding My blood, but it was above all through the interior cross that Redemption was accomplished" (Diary, Sept. 7, 1896).

~ Jesus to Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida,
Today on the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross, Fr. Dominic preaches on the remarkable paradox of a triumph coming from an instrument of defeat. By humiliating himself on the Cross he triumphed over the pride of Satan, the pride of sin. So now the Cross is a sign of hope toward which we should all lift our eyes and hearts in gratitude and joy. Ave Maria! For Audio go to http://airmaria.com/?p=14737

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
